Easier2move has estimated that online conveyancing can save up to 15 days in the home buying process.
It says solicitors usually send a minimum of six documents to their client via the post during the conveyancing process and three of these need to be signed and returned by the client.
Sending these documents from the solicitor to the client and vice versa can take between nine and eight days,
By sending these documents directly to the client via email, Easier2move says it can save time, as the process can be completed in as little as three days.
With a postal strike planned this week, customers using traditional conveyancers may face even longer delays than usual, it says.
Karen Babington, sales and marketing director at Easier2move, says: “The postal strike has highlighted what an inconvenient method post can be when dealing with such important and time dependent documents.
“Being able to offer consumers the added security that all their documents will be sent directly to them is a weight off their shoulders during such a stressful time.
“By offering email and text alerts our users allow their customers to be up to date with their transactions without having to arrange time consuming face to face meetings.
“Offering an online ID checking service is also an added benefit for consumers as they don’t need to send away any ID via post, which we hope has helped to streamline the conveyancing process for both our users and their clients.”
